Eats Lately!

I love summer... the sunshine, the warmth, early morning runs, splash pads, time with friends and the food! Salads, tacos, BBQ's, icy drinks and more!

Here are a few of my favorites lately:

Drumsticks with grilled squash and romaine with homemade caesar dressing

 Sheet pan dinner: roasted red potatoes, broccoli and salmon

Sautéed rainbow carrots, zucchini and kale and lime La Croix

Dive in cinema night at The Green Valley Resort featuring a grapefruit and rosemary cocktail

Italian farro salad with olives, peppers and feta

Give me all the La Croix: berry is especially delicious

Golden Beet salad with goat cheese

Me Gusta Tacos: fish and veg tacos with homemade salsa and spicy crema plus pineapple basil aqua fresca

 Parsnip and garbanzo bean salad with peppers, celery and parsley
